Alcohol-Free Moisturizer

What's everyone's favorite Alcohol-Free Moisturizer? 

With warmer weather on the horizon, I need to phase out my retinol serum and want to start using the Dr Dennis Gross A/B pads at night http://www.sephora.com/extra-strength-alpha-beta-face-peel-P269122?skuId=1352194 

I've had success with them in the past, and my skin isn't as sensitive to sunlight with it like other treatments are. I know in the directions it states to avoid products containing alcohol, and checked out my stash... all my moisturizers have alcohol in them. Even the Korres sleeping facial Smiley Sad 

I'm also considering trying Perricone's Blue Plasma instead, but am unsure how much sun sensitivity it has. I hate that "warm, I feel like my face is going to fry" feeling even when wearing SPF 50 with big sunglasses. It's most annoying when driving in the car and the sun magically finds a spot on my face that I can't block.

Thanks! My skin didn't like the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, but I did try the moisture surge gel and thought it was decent. I think when using a strong treatment, you need to be careful what's inside the moisturizer. I might purchase the moisture surge gel. Thanks for reminding me Smiley Wink 

Re: Alcohol-Free Moisturizer

You may know this already (the Korres Sleeping Facial has both types), but some ingredients w/ alcohol in the name are actually fatty alcohols (emollient), so you don't need to avoid those. Examples: Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol and Behenyl Alcohol in the Korres Sleeping Facial.

 

Just thought that might help with your search!

Re: Alcohol-Free Moisturizer

Thanks, I did know that, but I get a little disappointed when I see just "alcohol" in the ingredients list. I had a hard enough time finding toners without alcohol (I never liked alcohol in my toner) & now it's on to moisturizers... You're right, The Wild Rose Sleeping Facial does have both Alcohol & Behenyl Alcohol.

And this would work well to complement the Alpha Beta Peel:

Re: Alcohol-Free Moisturizer

I'm hoping this suggestion may work as I was told by the Nars specialist that it IS alcohol free- (also stated on our site too!) Their new skincare line has been really great on my own sensitive skin without drying it out or feeling too hard- plus I use the PTR max complexion pads which makes my skin a little more sensitive but the nars works well with it!

Re: Alcohol-Free Moisturizer

Thanks Diana! I was looking at this too. I was at a NARS counter not too long ago and was told that they partnered with Shiseido for their skin care line. 

Re: Alcohol-Free Moisturizer

Yes! I love how re-vamped everything is- I just opened my new eye cream of theirs and it  is SO lightweight but was really moisturizing- I put my makeup and concealer on after it and no creases or dryness which is a miracle in this dry windy weather! Smiley Happy
